Having trouble writing external resume. As a consultant, I’ve had multiple titles/clients. I want to highlight the management and impressive roles I’ve had in all different projects/clients, but the scanners see it as a “job hopper”. Also, resume becomes very crowded. How do I list myself as a consultant at accenture - with multiple titles/clients for the past 2 years? I just got laid off and need to start applying. Any help will be appreciated.

I would just put the titles that are relevant to the position you’re applying to

Assuming you’re not talking about another generalist consulting role. For example, if you’re applying to a strategy role just list the relevant title and experience , no point in talking about implementation work, unless they ask during the interview

Summarize your job role at Accenture. Add 1-2 notable project that’s relevant for the job. Add internal initiative you get involved if any.

I agree with the above 2 contributions. It’s worth noting that you don’t need to put every single thing you’ve done on your CV, just the main/ relevant points and you can discuss the rest during an interview to show breadth of experience

Hire a resume writer or get a recruiter to help. You’ve got to change your resume for every job application also.

Husband and I are 8 months in to trying to conceive. After consulting with my doctors, based on my history w/ vaccines, we decided it is best to not get the vaccine while TTC. My obgyn also wants 18 months of consecutive trying before we start testing / looking at other options. My firm just changed policy to only allow vaccinated in the office and made hard deadline for everyone else to get vaccinated. Not sure what to do. Don’t want to tell employer I’m TTC but also don’t want to get fired.

Curious if there are any Director level people in this bowl that managed to exit to an industry (FS) role by applying to a job posting at an organization where they had no relevant connections/referrals. How did you manage to land the exit ? Would appreciate any insights aside from the typical paths of networking your way in, ATS bingo, pain letters, or reaching out to the hiring manager on LinkedIn.

I am interviewing at D and two industry roles ( change management leads, on a team of change practitioners so not a leader of a coe). Thinking of the role(s) after this next role (senior managers, directors), will it be a mis-step to never have done consulting/client services if many of the job posting list 3-5 years or more in consulting? Am I shooting myself in the foot if I take an industry role again)? I would be coming in an a senior consultant at D. Continued below in comments
